Clare TD Says It Remains To Be Seen Whether Government Agreement Will Last

Enda Kenny could make history today if he becomes the first Fine Gael Taoiseach to be returned to power.

A Dáil vote will take place this afternoon but Enda Kenny still needs the support of Independent TDs after negotiations continued late into the night, trying to iron out the final details of a deal.


Fianna Fáil have already agreed to support a minority Fine Gael Government, for at least three budgets and Clare TD Joe Carey says it remains to be seen whether that deal will hold steady. 

But Deputy Carey believes there's will in both parties to make the arrangement work.

Following today's vote, Enda Kenny is expected to appoint his cabinet, and later Junior Ministers and Committee chairs.

Clare's Independent TD Dr Michael Harty has been mentioned as a possible chair of the health strategy committee.
